|Sunday Best photo submission|

Living in the city there is always something going on. It is very easy to get caught up in the whirl of activities. Our minds and bodies however need a bit of tranquility to recoup from time to time. It is times like that when I embrace tranquility and head straight for one of the many beautiful parks in our city, such as the Japanese Gardens you see in these photos.
Although the busy streets are not far from the park very rarely do you hear the hectic street sounds. As I was walking in the park, every so often I would smell the scent of burning wood and kept thinking of a camp fire. The scent was strong and steady in one area of the park, so after leaving the park I took a look around and discovered that a homeowner next to the park had trimmed his trees and was burning the dried branches in one of those cast iron fire pits. For me it added to the serenity of the park, reminding me of the beautiful camp sights I have enjoyed in years past.
